Brief SummaryRead full entry
BiologyDuring the breeding season from November to February (4), monogamous pairs will defend small territories containing their nest (2). Nests are well hidden amongst vegetation or between boulders (2), and both the male and female will take part in incubating the two to three eggs that are laid (4). Outside of the breeding season birds flock together but do not migrate (2). Their diet is made up of shoreline crustaceans, spiders, molluscs and insects, which are foraged from the sea-shore at low tide (2).
